  Identifying new therapeutic targets and testing their potential for the treatment of chronic inflammation in arthritis.
  Dr G Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common forms of autoimmune disease, affecting ~1% of the global adult population.
  Role of Eph tyrosine kinases in cancer immunotherapy
  Prof A Ridley
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. T-cell-based immunotherapies are highly successful in reducing or eliminating melanoma in some patients, but still most patients have little or no response.
  The neutrophil response to viruses
  Dr B Amulic, Dr Y Yamauchi
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Neutrophils are abundant immune cells that are essential for defence against pathogens. They combat microbes by phagocytosis, degranulation and release of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).

PhD Type

Through the work in Bristol’s School of Geographical Sciences, Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) and the Met Office, the UK is world-leading in the estimation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using atmospheric data.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Modelling coupled human-water systems: Characterising human-water interactions and their impacts on future water scarcity
  Dr G Coxon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is projected that England will be facing severe water supply shortages due to climate change and increasing demand from growing populations and societal development.
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Oceans losing breath: is anthropogenic climate change to blame for recent oceandeoxygenation?
  Dr O Andrews
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygen is essential to biological and chemical processes in the ocean. Over the last 50 years low-oxygen zones which are hostile to marine life have expanded by an area about the size of the European Union [1].
  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) The impact of global warming on hurricane-induced storm surges in the Caribbean
  Dr R Bingham, Dr D Mitchell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type
